A cloud based end-to-end metadata repository


Clinical Metadata is a web-based metadata management solution that helps the pharmaceutical industry implement CDISC standards and accelerates the study reporting process.

The tool manages raw, SDTM, ADaM and Analysis Results Metadata, steers users towards CDISC compliance and generates SAS code fragments and submission deliverables. It assists the standards governance process by managing metadata across a standards hierarchy, promoting metadata re-use and saving user time.

Built using the latest enterprise grade technologies, and with a focus on security, transparency and traceability, Clinical Metadata is intuitive to use and promotes collaborative working.

Clinical Metadata is designed and built by a UK team based in London and Warwickshire.
